delivering key speeches on u.s. foreign policy. ing in fact, mr. romney is about to speak in minutes. governor romney spent yesterday attacking mr. obama for international crises from the killing of americans in libya to the anti-american uprising in much of the muslim world. is this missile test a new talking point? the former chief speechwriter for george w. bush and his defense secretary donald rumsfeld. he joins us from the american enterprise institute in wash where he writes on foreign policy and defense issues. good morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> i'm good. thank you so much for joining us. this is a chance for mr. romney to look presidential at a time when polls show strong support for mr. obama's foreign policy is slipping. you are a former speechwriter. what does governor romney need to say today? >> well, it is interesting because president obama -- just a few weeks ago president obama was boasting about his foreign policy achievements and mocking mitt romney for how little foreign policy experience he has. it is a difference what a couple of weeks makes. as you
the intelligence briefing. >> eric: why is romney letting obama run foreign policy now. why isn't he changing the debate rhetoric back to the economy? let's create outrage and say not meet with the world leaders. >> andrea: good point. it's unfortunate, when romney did come out and try to criticize the president and we know he was right in what he said. we found out two weeks later, seems like he shied away. he was right. he should continue to hammer home the point. but the media went after him. they went after him. he was right. >> bob: your question is on point here. here is the fact that this election probably about the smallest number of people going to the polls voting on foreign policy than any i can think of in recent years. right? so to keep the ball on foreign policy keeps it off of the main issues that people will vote on. >> dana: i don't think this is about foreign policy. this is about decency and about how he has conducted himself as president. some people might like going on the show, pimp with a limp and doing letterman in the same week. honestly, bob, president of the united
york. >> woodruff: and we assess the administration's foreign policy as mitt romney criticizes the president for the way he's handled overseas crises. >> ifill: then, paul solman looks at why applying for jobs online may just not work. >> woodruff: what's behind the >> i check the email and the job sites hourly. from 7:00 in the morning until midnight. >> woodruff: what's behind the drop in s.a.t. scores? ray suarez looks at the surge in the number of students taking the test, and what it tells us about learning. >> ifill: plus, we talk with journalist bob merry. his new book explores how voters, pollsters, and historians judge presidents. >> you can't be a leader of destiny, as i describe it, and change the critical landscape simply because you got elected president and willed to do it. the country has to need that or want that. >> woodruff: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. >> intel. sponsors of tomorrow. >> and by the bill and melinda gates foun
the president and mitt romney in the same city giving dueling foreign policy speeches. the romney campaign season opening in the wake of the terror attack in libya questions about the president's mideast policy. now as you note both men here in the battleground of ohio today sort of shadowing one another, domestic issues more the focus of course here in the midwest. 18 electoral votes in ohio. no republican has won the white house without winning this state first. as you know "the new york times" cbs battleground poll shows the president up 10 points. 53 to 4 3-point it. there is a lot of talk about republicans that there has been an over sam blink of democratic voters and the votes are being screwed against the romney campaign. nonetheless if you look at "the new york times" battleground poll, for example, previously the president only had a single digit lead here in ohio, now up to a double digit lead. even if it's off a little bit the bottom line is the trajectory is favoring the president at least for now arthel. arthel: on top of all that i should say the economy there in ohio seems t
close to what you might call a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encaps late it? >> guest: he it a smart and successful person. he's been talking about foreign policy. it's not the issue he wants to emphasis in the campaign. he wants the campaign to be obviously about the economy and about our unemployment rate. and it's an unusual position for republican to be in to be running against democrat who has a strong record on national security. i think that's been difficult for the romney campaign, you know, i have worked for both republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i'm not a political person. but if seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of a democrat and sometimes accuse democrats of being weak on national security. on this election you have president obama who have taken us out of iraq. president obama who has waged a tough war against al qaeda and has gone off the leadership note tbli osama bin laden who has taken out from the terrorist on yemen -- and president obama because of the actions in the very pressive record has boosted am
of economic policy, the president leads mitt romney 48-39. now, this is what happens in europe when living standard plunge, rioting overnight in spain and a general strike in greece, this is the people's response over there to austerity. we've got another all-star lineup for you, watch out everybody, "varney & company" is about to begin. woman 1: this isn't just another election. we're voting for... the future of our medicare and social security. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidates stand on issues that... affe seniors today and in the future? find out with the aarp voters' guide at earnedasay.org >> good morning, "varney & company" viewers, today is wednesday, december 26th. here is the big story of the day. a picture of decline and financial hardship. since president obama took office, household income is it down a whopping 8.2%, even if you measure
. >> reporter: from there, romney turned to education policy at a forum sponsored by nbc news. >> we have proven that sending a lot of money to failed schools to pay the same teachers to do the same things will not make any difference. the real key is leadership in drawing the best and brightest to the profession, giving them the right incentives, promoting the very best, helping our students have discipline in the classroom, insisting on the participation of parents. >> reporter: the candidate new york city stop came as another poll. this one from the "washington post" found ohio swinging toward the obama column. no republican has won the white house without ohio. with that in mind, romney and running mate paul ryan began a bus tour through ohio this afternoon. >> sreenivasan: the u.s. supreme court upheld west virginia's congressional redistricting plan today. critics of the redistricting had argued that the populations within newly drawn districts were too far out of balance, but the supreme court reversed a lower court ruling and said the state legislatures was correct in trying to keep coun
have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama bin laden, who has taken out some of the terrorists in yemen, including awlaki, an important terrorist
. >> absolutely. >> one of romney's top foreign policy advisors said the other day that obama has made the united states look impo nent the world. dot facts bear that out. >> i disagree with that. i disagree with that. the suggestion that somehow america could or even should be in the drivers seat in the arab spring is inherently ridiculous. i mean what happened in egypt was done by the people, the young people, primarily, in tahrir square. then the egypt that was left having lost its autocratic superstructure was still an egypt, just look at the distribution of the population, most likely to produce an islamist government, with which it did. all along the way we should try to maximize our values and our interests, including freedom and human rights, and not just majority rule but minority rights, and individual rights. but we couldn't control it, and we shouldn't. and i expect that's what president morsi will say here tomorrow. but if you look at libya, we had more opportunities to influence it, and we did. and we influenced it in a very positive way. and they like us more than a lot of people d
. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so many ways this is also domestic policy, these wars. first of all, veterans benefits and the fact that the romney camp views this as part of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to t
foreign policy the best? obama, 49%. romney, 46%. margaret? go ahead. >> absolutely. this is a strong suit for president obama, but we have also seen the numbers soften in the past few weeks, especially since the attacks on our embassy abroad on september 11th. this goes to a point of where is the american leadership? no actionable response that the american ambassador was killed in an embassy abroad. >> i think we have done a lot of things but i think the most interesting thing about yesterday is looking at the two of them, i was there at the clinton global initiative where they spoke a couple hours apart. and i thought romney was terrif terrific. >> we'll play that and then we'll talk about it. >> a lot of americans, including myself, are developed, excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terror attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we are at the mercy of eve
on foreign policy against romney, and he doesn't really draw more attention to all the unrest in the middle east that's going on right now, but, you know, pairing his visit with going on "the view" obviously was really bad optics. the campaign is sort of trying to backtrack that, saying it was a scheduling matter, both events were in new york, so he tried to be efficient with his time. it's sort of just a lose-lose situation for him. if he had met with the leaders, he would have drawn more attention to the problems in the middle east. >> greta: he could have done both. he could have gone on "the view" and met with world leaders, right, steve? >> yeah. >> greta: i mean, he could have done both. >> it's inconceivable that he didn't meet with world leaders, that he didn't change his schedule to meet with bibi netanyahu. if you believe the rhetoric coming out of the white house and the state department they buy the way that the israelis define the threat. they sort of want to believe the urgency. yet the president won't meet with netanyahu on -- potentially on the verge of a war, in an effort t
lou: cover romney in new york today give a very good speech before the clinton initiative, but it was one that, frankly, was somewhat discordant because it was not relevant to the foreign policy issues being discussed by the leader of the free world and the commander in chief. what is your reaction? >> i think that mitt romney is in a position to win this presidential race. i think it is very important that he stop acting like a candidate and start acting like the president of the united states. what i would have had him do today is be meeting with these four leaders as the president refused to do and give that differentiation between the president of the united states sitting there on a talk show talking about being eye candy and having mitt romney meeting with leaders to try and solve these problems. that is what will be hit -- see him do. lou: and yet, and yet president obama, despite brushing aside the prime minister, despite just simply refusing to meet with any number of the leaders who one would have believed, as we pointed out, are from that statement by the candid
policy and, of course, a presidential race between president obama and governor romney. it is getting better all the time. stay with us. >> third world dictators behave like this if ronald reagan when the president? remember. maybe romney is taking a page out of that playbook. looking for a better place to put your cash? here's one you may not have thought of -- fidelity. now you don't have to go to a bank to get the things you want from a bank, like no-fee atms, all over the world. free checkwriting and mobile deposits. now depositing a check is as easy as taking a picture. free online bill payments. a highly acclaimed credit card with 2% cash back into your fidelity account. open a fidelity cash management account today and discover another reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. ♪ lou: joining me now, the "a-team" great to have you with us. let me start with you. the president's speech today, he did not in conjunction with the state of israel say they are allied. he did not talk or mention once radical islam. or radical islamists, and he did not specifically call the atta
and romney laying out his plan for a pros pair path. lestarat tle so, steve, you have a theory for why foreign policy the talk of the town this week. >> well, because it's u.n. week. i mean that's the obvious. 'roi o on a limb here. >> i'm glad we built this up. i wouldn't be surprised if it's still something they're talking about after u.n. week and it strikes me that there's a lot of evidence, and even evidence from repuican polls that the ntrehe romney campaign that there are going to be swing voters, that economic frustration will ultimately lead them to say i won't ask questions. i want to turn to mitt romney, that too's just not working. the newest evidence today, republican polter david winston said 18% of his asked and 18% if they're better off than fou years ago. 77% whether they believe things will get better in the future. 48% say problems are caused by the past, 45% say the curnt economic policies are causing more problems. the romney campaign is basically losing. it's basicly a wash. kpta gin for other things and that's why we're hearing -- >> romney is ahead over veterans
is the same as the president's. mitt romney and has basically described the current policy as criticism. you asked how long we have. it is important to remember that iran is not on the brink of having a nuclear weapon. they have made clear progress. they are accumulating uranium at certain levels, but it was still take them at least one year to develop a nuclear device. that is likely to remain the case for some time to come. more importantly, for them to make such a move toward a device could be detected. the only way they can generate material for a nuclear device is t facilities that as are under inspection. they would get caught in plenty of time and giving americans and others to respond. we will not be caught with our pants down on us. we still have time to achieve a diplomatic outcome and let the sanctions soak in. we can find a peaceful way out of this before rushing into another war in the middle east. >> let me follow that up. the israeli government, the prime minister, at least, has challenged the united states to define a red line or else is would be able to act on its own withou
! >> mitt romney and paul ryan have the experience and record and they have the public policy plans to put america back to work. before we give a warm miami valley welcome to the next president and vice president of the united states i want you to give a warm welcome to a colleague of mine and friend who snuck across the border from kentucky today. he is a doctor who understands the dangers of obama care. he is a fiscal conservative who understands the nature of the record debts and deficits and understands they are a danger to our country and kids. finally, folks, he is someone who believes that we can not afford another four years of this. gentlemen, i give you mr. paul. >> anybody think it is time for a new president? >> anybody here think like i do that obama care is still unconstitutional? >> yeah. >> anybody here offended and mortified to see people around the world burning the american flag? >> yeah! >> president obama's response? send them more money. >> boo! >> they are attacking our embassies, burning our flag, torturing and imprisoning the man who helped us get bin laden. what i
running the foreign policy establishment if you elected mitt romney -- these folks led us into the most disastrous foreign policy decision in a generation which was the invasion of iraq. it empowered iran, it created a trillion dollars of debt charged on the national credit card, it killed more than 4,000 americans, it wounded more than 30,000, it left hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or displaced. and yet these folks want us to hand the keys of foreign policy back to them? it's, it's -- i mean, the nerve of the individuals who drug us into the worst foreign policy disaster in the middle east in a generation, to say that they somehow understand this region better is, it's laughable, frkly. >> well, you mentioned syria. how -- there's a lot of pressure for the administration to get more involved in syria. how do you think the administration is responding, how should it respond? >> well, on this issue it's interesting. you know, if you actually peel away a lot of governor romney's positions on a lot of issues, there's not a lot of difference between him and president obama. in fact, s

a cartoon. mitt romney -- the u.s. should immediately bomb england. foreign policy with mitt romney. this is a cartoon that i had in my comic strip. we each have these -- i do not know. i am not sure if best and -- i promised i would not miss up your comic strip. we each do a comic strip so we are lucky as far as editorial cartoons. good to use the other side of our brands to read comics. i have been accused of making my way to political. this is my 9/11 tribute. it actually was originally a long strip. you have to turn your head to see it. i made it into an editorial cartoon. here is mitt romney having a candlelight vigil for osama bin laden. this is a cartoon i did the year after 9/11 about maybe some of the causes behind 9/11. this is also the year after 911. i call it the twin tepees. it marks the genocide that has happened. it was a reaction to some of the more excess of chest beating about 9/11. we never remember the other tragedies that have been on american soil. i do not really have anything to say about this. [laughter] i think the ladies and know what i am talking about.
's right. i think it was irresponsible for romney to go out and make comments before knowing what's going on. >> we've got to get professional with our foreign policy. we have to understand there is some reality to peace through strength and trying to be soft and apologetic as a foreign policy tool is the dumbest thing we can do. >> the president made no apology in that speech today. >> bill: joe, let me ask you this question. joe, he was pandering -- i was embarrassed frankly to watch him give the speech. >> i was proud of him. >> bill: didn't talk about the block there was a crucifix in urine. >> read the speech. read the speech. >> bill: joe, you got to stop interrupting. juan at interrupting. one at a time. >> you interrupt me, i won't interrupt you. >> bill: that's the way it works. this is a picture of mohamed morsi, former muslim brotherhood head referred to the israelis as vampires, was part of a terrorist organization, gets $2 billion, american dollars, a year, and i want to know, he says that we're not necessarily an ally of egypt, he's aligning with iran. why should we give mor
